Angad Bedi and Neha Dhupia’s rushed and hushed wedding in May raised a lot of eyebrows, despite the fact they two had been dating for a while. When Neha announced her pregnancy, a few months later, rumours were rife that the couple was expecting much before their nuptials.
In a recent appearance on Neha’s radio chat show, No Filter Neha, Bedi addressed the rumours and revealed why the wedding was done is such a rush.
Angad confirmed Neha’s pregnancy was the reason behind their sudden marriage and shared that the wedding was planned within four days.
He shared that he was very nervous when he had to break the news to Neha’s family and as expected, the news was met by a huge showdown as his in-laws blasted him for creating such a situation. Neha’s mother went mad upon hearing the news and even suffered from nose bleeding amid the outburst.
Bedi added that Neha’s parents always wanted her to settle down with Angad but that she was undecided.
Moving ahead Angad shared how they had only four days to plan the wedding, which did not go down well with his close friends. The actor opened up about how his best friend and cricketer Yuvraj Singh had taken serious offence. Angad clarified that he had tried to approach him but since the cricketer was busy with IPL, the two couldn’t get in touch in time.
Following Angad’s revelations, Neha also opened up about her wedding and revealed that she had no wedding dress 10 hours before the wedding. However, fortunately, her baby pink bridal reached just in time.
Neha and Angad are expecting their child in December. Neha is often spotted flaunting her baby bump.
Interestingly, earlier in a Humans of Bombay post, Bedi had presented a slightly different account of the way the two had gotten hitched.

“He tells me that he 1st saw me at the gym when I was 20 & told his friends, ‘I’m going to get to know her 1 day.’ When we moved to Bombay, we met at a mutual friend’s party–it was just us standing in the balcony. I saw a different side of him–beyond the jokes & wit, there was a sensitive man. We were both away from home in Mumbai, so I always relied on him for support. He lived a bachelor life & the 1 place he could always get home food was mine. We became close friends–there was no façade & no attempt to impress one another. Well, no attempts on my part! In fact, he was the 1st call after a major heartbreak & he talked me through it–I’m sure there was a hidden motive! He wasn’t low key about his feelings for me. I was shooting in Punjab & told him about a role for him. He didn’t ask for any details. He only cared about spending time with me & flew down immediately. After that shoot, he showed up at my parents’ doorstep & asked for my hand in marriage….I had no idea about it! This was when I was dating someone else! When Angad met my boyfriend, he was nice to him, but wasn’t subtle about his love for me! Finally, at a party, Karan Johar took us aside & screamed, ‘Can you not see this?! Are you blind?’ You should’ve seen the look on Angad’s face. He had ‘I told you so!’ tattooed on his forehead. When we finally decided to get married, he didn’t go down on one knee & propose. He told me I’d already wasted 4 years & declared ‘Chalo Dilli!’ to meet his parents. Then he said, ‘Before you change your mind, pick an outfit because we’re getting married in 2 days!’ Earlier, I loved the set life. I wouldn’t give it up for anything. But now I look forward to coming home to him. I couldn’t imagine myself as someone who runs to the door, but when it’s time for him to come home, guess what I do? He’s currently shooting both day & night. When he comes back at 7 am, he makes me breakfast & then goes to sleep. We’re still figuring it all out & don’t expect to have it all together. Everytime we’ve planned our lives, they’ve fallen apart–so we’re sticking to the unplanned! The wedding, the baby, the parenting..we’re winging it all!”
